ICP opened it's new museum space at 250 Bowery in June of 2016. The premiere exhibit Public, Private, Secret is a thought provoking exploration of the idea of privacy in today's society and how self-identity is tied to public visibility. It runs through January 8, 2017. The International Center of Photography, or ICP, is a museum, a school and a center for photographers and photography. ICP's mission is to present photography's vital and central place in contemporary culture, and to lead in interpretation of issues central to its development. ICP celebrates photography's diversity in many roles: as an agent of social change, a medium of aesthetic expression, a tool for scientific or historical research, and a repository for personal experience and memory. Like the photographic medium itself, ICP's mission is expanding to encompass many new forms of electronic imaging media. The Permanent Collection at the International Center of Photography houses over 100,000 photographs. The collection spans the history of the photographic medium, from Daguerreotypes and real photo postcards to iris prints. ICP’s galleries, located at 1133 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street, were des... more
